‘Chicago Fire’: Will Miranda Rae Mayo’s Stella Kidd Have Severide’s Support Going Forward?

by Anna Dunn

Chicago Fire star Miranda Rae Mayo recently discussed what’s next for Stella Kidd. Mayo, who plays Kidd, talked about her future with Severide. But she didn’t give much away, trying to keep fans on their toes before the show returns.

In an interview with Cinemablend, Mayo was asked if Kidd will have the support of Severide upon her return. What was supposed to be a much shorter trip with the Organization Girls on Fire turned into a much longer trip, and she was gone for so long that it put Kidd’s job at risk.

Who knows? [laughs] I don’t know, I would imagine that his character… You know, it’s taken a lot for him to settle down and open up and be vulnerable. And Casey just left. So I would imagine that Stella going silent on him would sting,” she said. This lines up with what other people on the show have teased. It looks like Kidd is going to have a lot of explaining to do about why she went dark.

And Mayo knows that from Severide’s perspective, that’ll probably be pretty hurtful. This is especially true because Severide was going out of his way to help her. Thankfully, it seems like the two will find a way to make up.

“That would sting pretty bad. Hopefully… I think he will, though. I think they love each other and they just, you know, they continue to choose each other and it’s been beautiful to watch,” she continues.

So while it may be rough and Kidd will have a lot of explaining to do, it doesn’t seem like it’ll completely ruin that relationship.

‘Chicago Fire’ Has Teased Pelham is Here to Stay

Stella Kidd coming back means Pelham’s new job hangs in the balance. But getting rid of him may not be that easy. She really hurt her chances of becoming a lieutenant.

“Pelham is going to be sticking around for a minute”, Chicago Fire showrunner Derek Haas told Fansided. “You saw Boden offer him the lieutenant spot in this episode, which puts him rightfully in the firehouse family now. This is a guy who bounced around through no fault of his own.”

So now, there really has to be a place for Pelham, even if it doesn’t put Kidd in the best situation. We’ll at least see him for the next few episodes once the show returns.

Fans are excited for the return of Chicago Fire. The show performed incredibly well in the ratings last fall and will likely continue to do so in the spring months.

If you want to catch the next episode of Chicago Fire, it’ll air Tomorrow, January 5th on at 9/8 central on NBC. Chicago PD and Chicago Med also come back.
